'Half of a Yellow Sun is one of the biggest films I've done' - Genevieve

Super actress, Genevieve Nnaji who has done hundreds of movies said Half of a Yellow Sun is one of the biggest movies she has done. In an interactive session with journalists she said;
“Half of a Yellow Sun is one of the biggest films I have done so far, but definitely not the most challenging role I have played in movies. I have done a lot more challenging roles in Nollywood”
Genevieve Nnaji played the role of Miss. Adebayo in the movie. She said it was safer for her because she didn’t have to experience the horrors of the war but hopes that in future if a different story is told about the civil war she will love play to the role of an Igbo woman where she would express what it meant to be an Igbo woman at that era.

Boko Haram threatens to kill abducted girls if search is not stopped

Boko Haram men have threatened to kill the school girls they abducted in the early hours of April 15th if the search for them continues. This is after some Borno women under the auspices of BAOBAB Women’s Right said they are planning to storm the Sambisa forest where the abducted girls are believed to be held.

The women said since efforts by the military to rescue the girls haven't worked so far, it was time for them to take matters into their hands as concerned mothers.

The Spokesperson for the group, Professor Hauwa Biu, told newsmen
"We are ready to go into the forest and search for the girls. In fact, we are prepared to risk our lives and get up to Boko Haram camp and appeal to them to release the children to us so that they can re unite with their parents. There is nothing extraordinary in our quest to enter the dangerous forest. We learnt that some men in Chibok had earlier embarked on such mission, which later turned out to be fruitless. We felt that as mothers, we are in a better position to have the sympathy and concern over the fate of the missing girls. Our target is not to fight the abductors, but we want to beg them to release the girls in the name of the God that we all worship.”

Actress Jodie Foster marries Ellen DeGeneres' ex-girlfriend

In 2014, women marry women. I'm sure one would have been stoned to death if one had suggested it many centuries ago. I find woman and woman coupling weirder than man and man...maybe because men have that and that that allows them enjoy themselves, but women only have that, so how do they...? #Rhetoricalquestion...:-)

Anyway, actress Jodie Foster, 51, has married talk show host Ellen Degeneres' ex girlfriend, 44 year old photographer, Alexandra Hedison. Foster's rep confirmed to E Online yesterday.

Oh no! Chris Brown to be locked up till June as his trial is delayed

This is what they call witch When people say someone in your village is doing you, this is what it looks like. They're doing whatever they can to break him. Now feeling really sorry for him. Chris Brown will stay in jail until June after his D.C assault trial was delayed for months. His lawyer applied for bail yesterday but a judge in L.A turned him down.

His trial was supposed to start yesterday April 23rd but was delayed because his bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, who has already been found guilty of assault, wanted immunity to testify on Chris' behalf, saying that he and not Chris punched the fan. But he wasn't granted immunity and so he is refusing to testify while he appeals his verdict. Chris Brown's trial is now on hold until after Hollosy's appeal concludes...and this will take months. Chris Brown faces up to four years in prison if found guilty.

The singer reportedly broke down in court when he was told his bail application was denied. Now he's being sent back to California on Con-Air in chains to await his trial date. Hang in there, Chris!

Dear LIB readers: What does it mean when you have constant sex in dreams?

From a female LIB reader
This might sound unbelievable but it's the truth. I'm a 29 year old civil servant and I've been having sex in my dreams for years now.
There is a man who constantly has sex with me in the dream. When I say good sex I mean great sex. Goes down on me. Kisses me passionately and does all sort of things one can't even imagine and I wake up wet in real life. 
He appears only in the afternoon whenever I take naps, never at night  and this happens every single time I close my eyes at noon. The scary thing is that every time I try to look at his face he changes to either my brother, father, cousins or even my co workers.

Vybz Kartel caught on video committing murder; video leaks online

On April 3rd Jamaican dance-hall star Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing a former associate, Clive 'Lizard' Williams. He just filed an appeal against his sentence but it's unlikely he will make any headway with that because his murder video just leaked online.

When he was arrested back in 2011, the center piece of the murder case was a video tape made at the crime scene (Vybz' own home) implicating Vybz and his co-defendants. Well, someone just leaked that video footage...and it's chilling! They chopped the guy into pieces...that's why a body has never been found. This guy is ruthless, OMG! Continue...

Singer Harrysong known now as Mr Songs, revealed recently that his father and mother are siblings.

In an interview with Yes! magazine, he said he's an only child because his parents split after finding out they were related by blood.
"My father and mother are actually brother and sister. They gave birth to me before they could realize that. It was a big abomination, so they had to separate. Even, they attempted to kill my father in that village but he fled, because in Warri where I come from , it is a taboo. They termed it incest.”

Dear LIB readers: Should I still marry her?

From a male LIB reader
Met my girlfriend five years ago as we both came into university together. We started dating and in our third year she got pregnant which we had to quietly removed because we both were not prepared. Now we are both done with NYSC and in search of better paying jobs. The thing is she developed a sickness over the last one year which has been financially demanding. Her parents have sold all they can to keep her healthy and with the explanations from the doctors, her healing is far from now. I do believe in miracles but am worried if I can cope with the financial burden of her health when we get married as I am just about to start life myself.
Am thinking if it would be a wise decision to stay and marry her or do away with her.

Aftermath of Nyanya blast: Military checkpoint causes traffic gridlock

In the wake of the Nyanya bomb blast which occurred on Monday April 14th, which killed over 80 people, military checkpoints have been mounted at various strategic road junctions to check human and vehicular activities in the FCT.
Motorists/workers say these checkpoints have become a big problem for them as they lose many useful hours in traffic with some of them getting late to work and receiving queries.
According to a report on Channels TV, residents in Abuja say their fear is in the manner in which the military men carry out their search operations. They say the traffic opens them to a possible attack from Boko Haram men who can take advantage of the gridlock and strike again. They pleaded with the military to seek more effective ways to carry out their search...
